Metadata (Data about data or how the map was made)

This widespread bat is physically hard to distinguish from the Little Brown Myotis. It is a low-elevation bat that inhabits coastal forests, Ponderosa Pine forests, Douglas-fir forests, and arid grasslands. It is more closely associated with water than any other Washington bat.

Steppe and low to mid-elevation forest zones were core. In steppe zones, water/wetlands and irrigated fields were good habitat. Forest zones, water/wetlands and irrigated fields were good habitat; all other habitats were contingently suitable except medium to high-density development and bare ground.
